Mark was personable, knowledgeable, and down to earth from the first phone conversation. He gave honest advice that was greatly helpful. In particular, when the section 32 became available and negotiations commenced, we were nervous and worried, but he was really on the ball and helped us along. As days went by, we were more and more glad to have him representing us and giving us sound advice. He helped us to achieve a great result, and took away a lot of the stresses of the situation. Also, we won the property through a boardroom auction, and the results of that auction confirmed that Mark's earlier appraisal of the house value was spot on. We would highly recommend Mark's services to other property purchasers.June 2019 update: Mark was very helpful to us as a buyer’a agent (please see my previous review above). When it came time to renting the house out, i decided to go with Mark instead of a large real estate agency, and hoped for some personal attention: I was not disappointed! Firstly, since the rental property is quite close to where we live, Mark put in extra work to help us get great tenants. The house is quite old and had a few issues in the first year, and Mark got onto those quickly and had them resolved one by one. He also thinks clearly about each issue, and always gives me great advice regarding which repairs were actually quicker and cheaper for me to carry out directly, and which to handball to tradesmen. I would highly recommend Mark’s rental property management services.
Using Mark to help us upscale our family home proved to be a great decision. He offered pragmatic advice during our house search but most importantly he helped us secure the house we really wanted in a highly competitive auction environment. Thoroughly recommend him and his services.
Finding and purchasing a property on our own was becoming an extremely time consuming task. As first home buyers it was also a daunting task. We decided to get support and this was the best decision. Mark was always ready and is a master of his trade.Mark has market knowledge, insights, contacts and negotiation skills that are second to none. To top it off he is a friendly guy. Mark provided us with a great service and was an integral support at each step along the way. We would use WISE again ourselves and would recommend it to others, without a second thought.
I contacted Mark recently needing some urgent advice and guidence regarding a property purchase, he was fantastic and took the time to understand my situation and let me know ways I could move forward with our unique situation. It was so good to speak with someone that has the knowledge and experience to provide the guidance we needed to make the right decision. It was Wise advise! & I would highly recommend Mark and the team to anyone looking for professional and experienced Buyers Advocacy .
Mark was a terrific buyer's advocate. As a first home buyer, I hired Mark as I was very unsure on which suburbs to purchase in and I felt uneasy about the negotiating process.Mark assisted me with exploring the market and problem-solving through some options with regards to which suburbs to buy in. With Mark's help, we ended up settling on Werribee and found a unit that was very well-priced and close to the station and other services. Mark made it his effort to stick with my price limit and range.Mark assisted me with purchasing this property through private sale. Not only did we land the property on the first go, but we also beat a competing offer that was higher than ours by $5,000 by negotiating the conditions of sale in the contract. His real estate expertise is masterful and Mark paid for himself in what he saved me. Highly recommended!
Mark is a great buyers agent. We were OK on selling but totally lost in the buying process.Downsizing to another area, it was a daunting experience but Mark got us there in time.For anyone looking for that kind of help Mark is understanding and experienced in the ways of real estate... Thanks Mark!
Mark impressed us from the get-go with his knowledge of the market and friendly, down to earth nature. After nearly a year of looking for a property ourselves including failed bids at auction and unsuccessful offers he helped us to negotiate a winning offer (in a market with limited stock) within a month of us first engaging him. His cool and calm approach helped ease our anxiety in navigating a pretty major life decision and allowed us to fully trust that he'd achieve a great outcome for us. We've now secured our dream home in a better than we could have imagined location within our specified budget. Thank you Mark, we couldn't be happier!
We had a great experience buying our second investment property with Mark. He spent some time with us to understand our goals and presented options to us each week according to our brief. For properties that interested us, Mark attended the open for inspections and provided a video tour. Mark also bid at auction on our behalf with an agreed budget and game plan. Mark is a very personable, genuine guy and made the whole process as easy as possible. Highly recommended !
